The late shift: keeping planes in the sky

Crew chiefs from the 27th Special Operations Aircraft Maintenance Squadron carry their tools to the AC-130H Spectre gunship as they prepare for a nightly inspection of the aircraft. Many squadrons, such as the 27 SOAMS are operational 24/7 to keep aircraft in the air no matter what time it is. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Jette Carr)
